I LOVE IT WHEN A PLAN COMES TOGETHER
I went to see this at the cinema last night and I was not left disappointed by this all action blockbuster.
I grew up watching the T.V series in the 80s and used to love the episodes, This film does hold a few similarities to the T.V series but if your waiting for them to be locked in a barn with a welding torch and scrap metal and five minutes later come out in a tank then you might be left disappointed by this film.
The casting for me was quite good Liam Neeson does a great job as Hannibal Smith and I thought District 9s Sharlto Copley does a decent job as madcap Murdoch.
Bradley Cooper does a good attempt at Face and of course replacing Mr.T was always going to be a tough job and Quinton Jackson gives it a good go as B.A but still seems to be missing the craziness that Mr.T brought to the role.
The plot is very simple and the film relies on its superb special effects and great stunts to deliver and if thats the kind of film you enjoy a simple no brainer blockbuster that is packed with visual treats then this is the movie for you.
Like in the T.V series The A-Team have been set up for a crime they did not commit in Iraq, They escape from federal prison and go about clearing their names with the help of the lovely Jessica Biel who plays Sosa the Army officer charged with bringing the fugitives to justice.
This is a brilliant summer blockbuster that has great special effects and the action starts from the first minute and does not let up until the film ends, This will be one of those films that gets huge divided opinions some will love this all out action blockbuster and some will slate it for being to different to the original T.V series the best way to look at this film is that it is named after the old T.V show but this is a new movie for a new generation.
